DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan melt butter. Sauté onions until sweet. Add carrots and celery and continue to sauté for a few minutes. Then add in mushrooms. I used shitake and white button, but you can use more flavorful mushrooms -- Sprinkle with some sea salt and ground pepper and sauté for one more hot second.
  • Add your liquid. Chicken broth is what I used but vegetable broth would work well too I assume. Bring to a boil and then set to simmer. Add potatoes, lentils, and sage and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Keep simmering for the last few minutes while adding spices to taste. You always want to add spices at the last minute. Otherwise you'll cook the flavor right out of 'em.
  • Serve with a rustic loaf, whole wheat crackers, or a dollop of chevre on top.
